  1. OMG Issue

FIGI — Bitmap/JPEG graphics are fuzzy and/or unreadable

  • Key: FIGI-2
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Object Management Group ( Andrew Watson)
  • Summary:

    All the figures in dtc/14-07-01 are bitmaps, and fuzzy at high magnifications. In addition, Figure 6.1 and Figure C.1 are JPEGs, so have compression artefacts that introduce variations in what should be blocks of solid colour (again, visiible at high magnification).

    The problem is especially severe for Figure 8.3 (Identifiers), where much of the text in the diagram is unreadable at any magnification. For this reason, I suggest the issue is "Major".

    All these bitmap diagrams should be replaced with vector diagrams, preferably in a standard format like Vector SVG or Vector PDF. Non-standard vector formats like Vecor WMF or Vector EMF would also be acceptable.

  • Disposition Summary:

    Bitmap/JPEG graphics are fuzzy and/or unreadable

    Replace jpg-based images in specification with png-based images so as to provide images that can be magnified without loss of resolution.
